Why This Lot is Awesome

This lot is awesome because it offers 6 acres of secluded land that has already been surveyed. A long gravel driveway has been installed with a new culvert, leading to a pre-cleared building location among the trees. The opportunity for breathtaking views is already there, just drop a few trees and you’ve got the picturesque Western Catskills from your kitchen window!

This is How We Would Build on This Lot

This project would begin with selective ground clearing. The goal of this process would be to make way for a driveway, home site, septic location, and any accessory structures. Once the ground is prepped a construction driveway can be installed. A full septic system could be installed which is common to do before the building of the home begins. A well provider can drill and install a well. Electrical and cable utilities should be secured during the early phases of groundwork preparation. Once these groundwork items are completed this parcel could be on its way to the next phase of the project.
